curl -X POST \
  http://localhost:8006/builder \
  -H 'Content-Type: application/json' \
  -d '{
    "memo": {
      "text": "qwerty12345"
    "operations": [
            "type": "payment",
                "amount": "1000"
    "signers": ["*************************************"]

After doing this though my destination account got credited, while looking up the explorer it shows Memo N/A.

  1. What could possibly be wrong here?
  2. What can be done to fix this?

Hoping for answers!

  • This doesn't answer your question, but it often helps to debug these problems by cross-checking tools against one another, so you might check out github.com/xdrpp/stc which will let you see what transactions you are actually building without having to submit them to the network.

Oddly enough it doesn't look like the builder endpoint reads the memo from the request: https://github.com/stellar/bridge-server/blob/master/src/github.com/stellar/gateway/bridge/handlers/request_handler_builder.go

Maybe this is a bug in the bridge server, or an intentional omission?

  • I think they've omitted it; looking at the request_handler_builder. But why could they've omitted it? Any ideas?

  • Probably just missed it when it was implemented. Looks like payments support it so there's no reason I can think of that /builder does not.

  • Yep! Payment supports memo and works all fine ! Was jus wondering why they haven’t implemented it in /builder ?!

try to use this instead:


  • i did try that ! But didn't help either. The transaction envelope that i got from submitting this transaction to /builder shows memoNone.
